“In principle yung three rookies, we’re ok already, we have agreed with the contracts of Larry Muyang, Nic Demusis, and Aljun Melecio,” Team manager Paolo Bugia said.
He added that they have agreed on the terms of the contracts for the said top three picks with the management. Yet, the officiality of which will happen once the Enhance Community Quarantine (ECQ) is lifted.
“So far, in principle, we’re ok na. Medyo natamaan lang nitong ECQ. Kapag nakalabas na, maybe we can make it official na,” Bugia propounded.
And with the implementation of ECQ, the gunners of the team and the management were not able to have its training, Bugia affirmed that Muyang, Melecio, and Demusis are still staying in shape.
“They’re doing the online workouts now with their trainers to stay in shape,” he shared.
Muyang was picked during the first round falling at the spot of no. 7, while Demusis and Melecio were tapped on the second round at nos. 18 and 19, respectively.
Before the ECQ, the three cagers have already shown promising plays that made the Phoenix act faster on their contract terms even if it’s verbal at first.
“So I told them I will see them pag tapos na yung quarantine then we’ll keep them signed,” Bugia concluded.
